About the Movie
THE WHALE tells the true story of a young, wild killer whale - an orca - nicknamed Luna, who lost contact with his family on the coast of British Columbia and turned up alone in a narrow stretch of sea between the mountains, a place called Nootka Sound. THE WHALE celebrates the life of a smart, friendly, determined, transcendent being from the other world of the sea who appeared among us like a promise out of the blue: that the greatest secrets in life are still to be discovered. Narrated by Ryan Reynolds (SAFE HOUSE, GREEN LANTERN).

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: A documentary ideal for schoolrooms, family viewing and discussion.
Rotten: Docu dotes on its adorable, highly photogenic star, but nonstop voiceover commentary and exclamations of wonderment tend to lessen rather than enhance its impact.
Fresh: Thoughtful and moving, if often heavy-handed...
Fresh: Serious-minded, thought-provoking animal documentary will have a lengthy life, mostly in ancillary markets.
Saw this film on TV and still bought it here. It's that good!
Fantastic and touching film. Loved it on Knowledge and bought it here too. Wonderful. The world needs more of this kind of media. Great work!
